#1068 of 1859 The Pride and the Promotion
Feb 24, 2005 (5:01 am)
Some people read something into the quality of the Verona and the promotion that Suzuki does. I work in television. I remember the buzz flowing around the studio when a big named start was scheduled for an interview. We knew that they had a new movie soon to be released soon and it was a dog. Promote the hell out of it and hope that people see it before word spreads. With sattelite interviews, we don't see this any more.
Generally you promote that which you are not proud of, not that which you are. Get it sold before word spreads. Either that or pull them completely. Interesting that people connect pride and car salesmen.
New Veronas, especially 2004 models, sitting on the back lot is a very good sign. Be very careful of the highly promoted model up front.
Here in KC, enjoyng my new Verona EX.

Sunshine..congrats on the new car!!! You got a super deal!!. I know my question sounds funny, but why would the dealer/suzuki offer such a warantee on the Car?.It leaves me - a Verona user for more than a year nervous. I get questions in my head---Is the current Verona model being scrapped---engine and trans and all?. What will happen to the parts and support?. I read on the web grapevine that the next Verona (I think it is being planned to be continued) will be scrapping the inline 6 and a GM engine and trans is being planned--this is not official and I would ask all to verify this. The engine may be provided in variants from 2.7L to 3.5L based on the epsilon platform?. I dont know if this is correct but i am just mentioning what I read on the web. So I wonder if they are axe-ing the inline 6. Sad because the inline is the smoothest engine I have driven.
Meanwhile my Verona is doing fine at 7800 miles. They checked out the fault on my driver window and replaced the switch..guess what? they found that the motor needed to be replaced. This brings me to the point that Zuki has to step up QC on the Car to boost sales and save trouble for the users as well as itself. Hyundai seems to be reaping rewards due to this..lookout for the new cars coming soon. Inthe process the Costs appear to have gone up. Comments...?

"On the one hand you are saying that Suzuki hides their Veronas in the back lot because they are ashamed of them, then you say the PR is squeing the figures to make the Verona stand out."
Yes, Suzuki is doing "Spin Marketing". And dealers only put in their front line what is selling. Go to most dealerships and you see trucks and SUVs in the front lines, because those are what is selling. If the Veronas were selling, the dealers would have a lot more of them, and they would be in the front line.

Quite hoestly, I don't care about Suzukis supposed problems. All I know is that I got an excellent deal on a car that I really like. On the other hand, you didn't.

Hello sunshine.. If you read back, you will find my posts, and you will be happy to see that i have a 2004 verona ex i leased in dec of 2004. I have had no problems at all, and i have 22,104 miles on this car since i use it for business. Yes i had the ecm replaced, but i never experienced the problems that everyone said they had. I just figured i would have it replace since it was recalled. I love this car, and get compliments all the time on looks and driving of the verona. Not every car is perfect, i had a saturn L200 before this, and the power steering pump went bad after 10,000 miles and the steering column also had to be replaced. Enjoy this car, and judge it by yourself, not what anyone tells you.

I think we all have different experiences. And I really hope for all of you who think you got a good one that you do. And yes I loved my ride when I first got it too. BUT! I did not get a good one. I have went to arbitration and lost because I was told by the attorney general that I did not need a attorney. Boy did I feel stupid when Suzuki high money attorney twisted every thing I said. And also said he never got papers I sent certifed. It was a joke, the hole thing was unfare and most of all I know how Suzuki is.Im very sad and unhappy with my car,and belive me I wish I was not.

I don't know why they would scrap this automobile. Check MSN's auto section and Edmunds. Despite the stalling problems, overall comsumer satisfaction with this vehicle is quite high.
